Just brainstorming: We have the locking.tdb record cache now. Does
that help here? Maybe the real performance penalty for the
non-contended workload isn't as bad anymore as it used to be. Of
course, if a lot of byte range locking activity is going on, things
go down, but does that matter in real world cases?
